ALBUQUERQUE,  (AP) — A regional official with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Thursday commended Gov. Bill Richardson and the New Mexico Environment Department for trying to establish a greenhouse gas emissions cap and trade program.
Dallas-based EPA regional administrator Al Armendariz sent a letter to the governor, praising the state for pushing forward to reduce emissions by 15 percent within 10 years, despite other parties questioning the necessity of curbing the pollution being blamed for climate change.
“With the electricity generating and oil and gas sectors so important in contributions to GHG emissions, as well as being important New Mexico industries, the state’s leadership in this particular rule-making is exemplary,” Armendariz wrote.
He also noted that the EPA has made action on climate change one of the agency’s top seven highest priorities and that New Mexico’s efforts are “a well-reasoned and fully participatory means of arriving at effective GHG mitigation.”
